Including your dog in outdoor activities is a great way to provide excitement to his day. Unfortunately, old age and health factors can limit your pet's comfort during walks and other exercising excursions. If your dog suffers from ailments that prevent her from enjoying outdoor adventures with you, use a bicycle trailer or dog stroller to bring her along for the ride.

Bicycle Trailers

Bicycle trailers are small compartments that safely pull your dog from the back of your bicycle. They are made with a sturdy frame and attach to most bicycles. The walls, floor and ceiling of the trailer is covered in an anti-slip material with netting for windows and ventilation. A zipper entry provides easy access for your dog to enter and exit. Depending on the size of your dog and your selection of trailer, you can fit more than one pet inside. A bicycle trailer is a great option for pet owners who bike moderately rough terrains.

Trailer Additions

If you want to provide extra comfort for your dog while he or she rides in the bike trailer you can purchase a Pet Mat. The Pet Mat is specific to the DoggyTrail, Dognovel and Minitrail trailers but incorporating a homemade pet cushion to any brand of trailer is an easy way to make your pet's ride cosier.

Strollers

Dog strollers are often used for small-to-medium sized dogs, although you can find strollers for large dogs up to 52.2 Kilogram. They look similar to human strollers but provide ample space for your dog to sit or lie down and have a removable cover that will help keep your pet confined when necessary. The seat and walls are often padded to provide cushioning and owners can choose to add extra bedding material to the seat for longer rides.

Stroller Uses

Pet strollers are great for bringing your dog into crowded places or near other dogs. They also keep his or her paws from damage caused by sidewalks. Pet owners who jog long distances on a regular basis can bring their dog along without having to worry about his endurance. Joggers may also consider using a pet stroller while running in high traffic areas. The stroller will provide confinement so that your pet stays out of harm's way.

Trailer/Stroller Conversion

The DoggyTrail Pet Bike Trailer is a great option for pet owners who want both a bicycle trailer and dog stroller. This product converts from a trailer into a stroller using the stroller kit option. The kit includes a third wheel for extra stability, parking brake and push bar.
